Thank you man! It's great to look back and both admire and chuckle at some of the concepts. Good times. It's a darn shame that what we have now is every company trying to build off of each others plants. But with the industry the way it is, it makes sense profit wise. I mean the market is getting more and more saturated with competitors.

Which is why it never made it into production.

:lol: That is a great car. I mean look at it. The lines, the curves, the way it handles... Just a great car!

I mean look at how close the front tires, top to bottom, are to the body. It must have the suspension of a go-cart. Talk about a smooth ride. Noway in hell you get back problems from driving the, pot-hole ridden streets of buffalo in that bad boy.

Two thumbs up for sure. Oh an here's how it faired on our test track.

2 minutes 53 seconds! It beat out the Yugo 101 by half a second, but the Gaylord was running on an extremely wet track.

I give the Gaylord a solid 9/10.
